DISCRIMINATION TRANSPARENCY INITIATIVE

Political action, 2014

In response to Michigan’s proposed Religious Freedom Restoration Act Bill -- legislation widely criticized for legalizing discriminatory practices in the name of “religious freedom” -- Detroit Satanists started a petition to urge the state Senate to consider adding an amendment that would legally require businesses who accommodate the public to post any discrimination policy in effect in a conspicuous location visible to patrons and employees. In addition, store front signs were made available to allow businesses or services to openly state their discrimination policies for those who would like to voluntarily participate.  Not only would such signs help save time and embarrassment for those who might otherwise go into a place of business and find themselves unwelcome, but they would also prove helpful to those of us who disagree with discriminatory policies in general.
